Work for Money, Design for Love

It should be a few more days before I get my author batch, but it’s been great to see tweets and photos coming in from those who’ve received contributor copies and those who kindly pre-ordered.

A sincere thank you for the tweets, blog posts, and for spreading the news. It really means a lot.

Selected retailers here.

Here’s a Twitter account that highlights some reader comments and photos: @wfmdfl.

  1. Hi David, I’ve been following your blog for a long time but it’s my first time leaving a comment here (sorry for being a silent reader).

    Anyway, congrats on your new book. I really like Logo Design Love so I’ve been waiting for this one to come out. Thank you for sharing your experiences with us!

  2. Looking forward to receiving it, just ordered via Amazon.

  3. It only seems like a few weeks ago you were asking for people’s input and pondering over the front cover. What a fast year.

    Congratulations David on what I’m sure will be another fantastic read!

    Dear David,
    Like Keira it’s my first comment here, but I’m a fan of your posts, really. :)
    Congrats on your book. Looking forward to having it.

  5. Congrats David!

    I ordered my copy from Amazon! Getting it on wednesday, cant wait to read it :)

    Wishing you even more success! Keep up the good work as always :)

    God Bless!


  6. No need to apologise, Keira. Good of you to visit regardless of comments, and you’re welcome.

    Steve, Lak, thanks very much for ordering a copy. Hope you like it.

    Tony, Maged, I appreciate that.

  7. Thrilled to finally have a copy to have and hold.
    Congrats David!

  8. I’m enjoying it immensely, David, trying to be patient and not skip ahead.

    It’s a very, very good read so far. Thanks again for the copy!

  9. My pleasure, Richard. Is it those “more on that in chapter __” snippets that make you want to skip, or are there topics toward the end that you’re more interested in?

  10. I was wondering if you plan to publish it as eBook as well. Thanks a lot and good luck.

  11. Can’t wait to get my hands on it David, once again, congratulations.

  12. It’s more my impatience I think, David, although both of the things you mention are playing their part – both in a very good way, I should add.

  13. I was just flicking through your book “It’s not how good you are, it’s how good you want to be.” I have got so much value from this book and your other one “Whatever you think think the opposite.”

    Although I have just looked and this book costs a lot more than the others, how does it differ from the two books I have already got?

  14. Cheers Vojtech, it’s available as an eBook from Peachpit, or on Kindle from Amazon.

    Glad to read that, Richard. And thanks, Yaco.

    Hi Danielle, my new book differs in that it was written by me, and not Paul Arden.

    I’ve just published a new blog post where if you’re unsure about buying, you can choose a free chapter and I’ll make it available for download within the week.

  15. It will be interesting to read. I’ll try to find this book in our bookstores and hope it will be a great gift for the Christmas holidays.

    Congratulations, David, and thanks a lot!

  16. Dear David,

    I’m so happy to have finally gotten my copy of your new wonderful book! I can’t stop reading it.

    Thank you!

  17. I hope you enjoy the read, Julie, thanks!

  18. Congrats!

    Any plans for localization?

  19. Really liked LDL, so I just ordered this one. Excited to read it! :)

  20. A Chinese translation is being worked on, Uzny, but I’m unsure if any other foreign publishers have picked up the reins.

    Thanks very much, Anton.

    It’s great news for me that “a Chinese translation is being worked on.” Looking forward to it!
